Lions raise funds in many different ways in order that local good causes and charities can be supported, or Service projects can be funded. Here are a few ways in which the Carterton Lions Club raises money.

Car Boot Sales

We run monthly Car Boot Sales on the Recreation Ground at Carterton on Saturday mornings. The events run between March and October (inclusive) and are well supported by 'Booters' from the local villages and further afield, and also well supported by the people of Carterton who come along to catch the bargains!

Open Art Exhibition

Lions have run the Carterton Open Art Exhibition since 2010 with excellent support from local artists and some from as far afield as Cornwall.  The exhibition runs for five days, and we use the excellent facilities at the Carterton Community Centre on Shiltion Park. In recent years we have incorporated primary schools and Community College art competitions which are well supported 

Christmas Float

Christmas is a busy time for us, starting with the switching on of the Carterton Town Lights, All through December, we do house to house collections with Father Christmas and Rudolph, and you will also see us at key sites around Carterton or Burford on weekends in December.  We also support the local primary schools with the provision of our very own Father Christmas. See our Facebook page for more details - also see XMAS EVENTS tab

Collection Boxes

You might see one of our collection boxes in a Shop, usually supporting a specific project. Why not drop a couple of coins in it and help us to help others?

Don's Ramblings

Don is one of our more extrovert members who is well known in the locality for running a Barn Dance Band and being an entertaining speaker on many local topics. He also carries out 'Master of Ceremonies' duties at many local events, and the money raised from these events he generously donates to the Lions.  Don is a keen supporter of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance

Easter Egg Raffles

At various Pubs and other locations, large Easter Eggs are raffled in the lead up to Easter. We have a project which the participants can support, or we will provide documentation and support for them to raise money for their own pet causes. A chocolate delight for the winner.
